Situated at the confluence of three mountain streams- Muthirapuzha, Nallathanni and Kundala; the hill station of Munnar once used to be the summer resort of the erstwhile British administration in south India. This hill station is marked by vast expanses of tea plantations, colonial bungalows, rivulets, waterfalls and cool weather. It is also an ideal destination for trekking and mountain biking.
The lush green tea gardens surround the town of Munnar. Around 1.5 km from the town, the Tea Museum accommodates a demo model of a working tea factory, which shows the basic process. The museum contains artifacts from the Colonial era as well some photographs and 1905 tea-roller. The video section in the museum explains the history of Munnar and its tea estates. One can walk down or take an auto-rickshaw to reach the museum.
